terrific show, great recording
I was fortunate enough to make this show and it was terrific. The Mermen are in top form and boy does it show.
I really like the recoding qualities and take no issue with it (thanks MZ). I find some SDB's to be a bit flat for my ear, but this sounds great. I really appreciate that the intro to the absolutely epic "Within You Without You..." was kept intact to the rest of the piece, etc., etc.

Love the Mermen and thx to Mike Z. for uploading. Now, I hate to be nitpicky, but this just doesn't seem to have the clarity of a SBD. i.e. Jim's guitar very low at times (Ocean Beach) Allen's bass low at times (100ft. Lemon). The drums are crystal, but kind of drown the guitars throughout.
Again, I don't want to sound unappreciative... this is just what my ears are telling my brain.
